Shopping in Lisbon is a memorable experience. Discover traditional shops, antique dealers, flea markets and bookstores. Or stick with modernity by going to the shopping malls and stores selling the latest trends in Portuguese and international fashion. And wherever you shop, the good news is that you’ll definitely get value for money.
For traditional shops, head to the Baixa and Chiado districts, where outlets still retain much of their original architecture and all the charm of 19th-century shopping. Casa das Velas do Loreto, Chapelaria Azevedo or Luvaria Ulisses are just some of the shops that you cannot afford to miss. It’s also well worth taking some time to explore the bookshops in this district – Bertrand, Sá da Costa or Lello – where you can forget about time as you browse through the latest publications.
If you’re looking for real bargains, then you should take a trip to the Feira da Ladra, the flea market held on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
And if it’s new fashions that you’re after, you can’t afford to visit the city without dropping in on the shops of designers such as Ana Salazar, Fátima Lopes, José Carlos, Manuel Alves/José Gonçalves and José António Tenente. Along the Avenida da Liberdade meanwhile, you’ll find all the big international brands.
